2nd Cimarron County Meningitis Case

A second person from Keyes is in the hospital because of Meningitis.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health reports a woman in her 70's is in the hospital in Elkhart receiving treatment.

She has the bacteria that can cause the form of Meningitis that killed a 10 year old boy from Keyes last month.

Now nurses in the Texas County Health Department, which serves Cimarron County, are trying to find out if the woman and boy may have had contact.

They also want to know who else may have had contact with the boy.
